Before embarking on this new venture, here are some general tips ahead of meeting us!

1. Have more fabric than you think you need if you’re supplying your own.

2. Avoid wearing heavy or baggy clothing to fittings.

3. Be realistic with your expectations (know the difference between what something looks like on a model’s body versus your own proportions).

4. Make sure to wear the underwear you would wear with that particular piece to ensure that it fits and looks right.

5. Wear the shoes you would wear with that garment so that your length measurements are accurate.

6. Be honest during fittings – it’s much harder to change later on once garments have been stitched together and completed.

7. Give yourself time for two or three fittings.

8. Know what you want and stand by it, but be open to expert advice.

9. Have fun!
